Melania’s Husband United States President Trump has repeatedly and vehemently denounced this policy which he has referred to as “chain migration,” in which adult American citizens can obtain residency for their relatives.

However there was no tweeting from President Trump On Thursday as his Slovenian in-laws, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, became United States citizens in a private ceremony in Manhattan by taking advantage of that same family-based immigration program.

Asked if the Knavses had obtained citizenship through “chain migration,” their lawyer, Michael Wildes, said, “I suppose.”

He said chain migration is a “dirtier” way of characterizing what he called “a bedrock of our immigration process when it comes to family reunification.”

I guess in this case what’s good for the goose is NOT good for the gander. the word hypocrite in chief does come to mind

Uganda President: I love Trump for calling African countries ‘sh**thole.’

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has given a speech declaring his “love” for US President Donald Trump especially for calling African countries ‘sh*thole’.

Earlier this month, Mr Trump was accused of referring to African nations as ‘sh*thole’ countries during an immigration meeting with members of Congress.

Mr Trump has denied making the remarks but some US senators who attended the meeting say that he did.

The African Union demanded that Mr Trump apologise for his “clearly racist” comments.

“America has got one of the best Presidents ever,” Mr Museveni said to laughter during the opening of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) in the Ugandan capital of Kampala.

“I love Trump because he tells Africans frankly. The Africans need to solve their problems, the Africans are weak.”

Mr Museveni’s comments are in opposition to the reaction of many leaders who have condemned Mr Trump’s language.

On Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron told the BBC that he shared Africa’s outrage.

On Monday, people in Haiti, another country that Mr Trump disparaged, protested against the US president’s remarks.

Mr Museveni’s defence of the president Trump came just hours after the US ambassador to Uganda criticised Mr Trump.

“[His words] are obviously quite disturbing and upsetting,” Deborah Malac said.

Mr Trump allegedly used the term “sh*thole countries” when asking why the US should accept immigrants from Haiti and some countries in Africa.

In 2017, Mr Trump allegedly said that Afghanistan was a terrorist haven; all people from Haiti “have AIDS”, and that Nigerians would never “go back to their huts” once allowed into the US, the New York Times reported.

The White House denied Mr Trump made the comments
